Today is my “little” brother’s birthday and I wanted to wish him a happy birthday and tell him how proud I am of him.  

He has managed to not only be an awesome brother (despite early childhood issues where I wasn’t sure I was going to survive big-sisterhood...), but he’s also an awesome dad with two great sons.  

Oh, and never mind what a terrific Unkee he is to Signa and Will.

So this post is for my awesome brother on his birthday.

I have a new morning game.  Ever since we were sick for three straight weeks, I can’t seem to get enough sleep.  I refuse to set the alarm, but instead of waking chipper at my normal 5:30-6:00 am, I’m waking groggy and grumpy at 6:30.  Well, 6:27 am to be exact.  And that is when the game starts.

I can’t get up at 6:27.  It has to be even.  So I get to sleep for 3 more minutes.  But what happens?  I over sleep by 5 minutes.  So now it’s 6:35.  I can’t get up at 6:35.  It has to be 6:45.  10 more minutes of sleep.

But then I oversleep that and it’s suddenly 7:10 and I have to race around to get ready.

Crazy.  Tomorrow I’m just sleeping.  And sleeping and sleeping.
